1. Wondrously Wooly Pom Pom Wreath
I have been making these for years and years yet still haven’t made a video tutorial–maybe this will be the year! Until then, tune into other inspiring bloggers who are more savvy at videography…
DIY Pom Pom Wreath Tutorial
Pom Pom Wreath Supplies: Makers
Pom Pom Making Supplies: Wreath Forms
In the tutorial, a foam wreath form like this one is used to hotglue the pom poms to form the wreath. Find various sized foam wreath forms HERE.
An alternative is using a straw wreath form like this one (which is what I use).
Pom Pom Wreath Supplies: Yarn & Glue
Here’s the exact yarn I used for the wreaths you see here and with which I have had good luck.
DIY Handmade Pom Pom Wreaths Look Great Everywhere
I like my handmade pom pom wreath with my dead pointe shoes and candlelight.
2. Wreath on a Vintage Frame
This is a super easy DIY that requires a thrifted pretty frame, black paint, a wreath and a ribbon. After painting the canvas or board black, hand-letter or stencil “merry christmas” before hammering a nail to the frame for your wreath and ribbon.
3. Market Bag With Greenery
You talented crafters are going to laugh at this 5 second DIY which is especially for souls who favor BUYing and COLLECTing craft supplies and tools more than using them!!!!
Here’s our inspiration from Petite Haus who tucked berry sprigs and greenery into this sweet red-trimmed market bag.
Market Basket + Faux Greenery = simple DIY holiday decor!
4. Boot-i-full Berries
No way does it get easier than tucking berries into charming wellies.
5. Pink Candy House
My little wonky pink candy house looks as though it was created by a 5-year old because I am wired for words, not house building. But. I hope my silly attempt gives you the confidence boost you need to create a lovely one!
Buy one of those gingerbread house kits and use sticks of pink gum as siding. I used store-bought royal icing for the mortar and stripey candy sticks for the roof.
6. Driftwood Christmas Tree Wall Decor
There are all sorts of nifty and darling DIY holiday decor projects using driftwood like this one…
And how cute when you combine little lights like this…
If you love the look but don’t have time for the labor, you can pre-order one of these driftwood pretties:
7. Wreaths on Cabinet Doors
YOU: Michele, this aint no DIY project.
me: I beg your pardon.
Gather your Materials: step stool, ribbons, duct tape, fresh or faux wreaths.
Instructions: Wing it, kittycats.
8. Sweet Signage for a Porch
For this sign which I move around the garden and display all year round, I used a salvaged piece of laminate flooring. Charcoal/Soft Black chalk paint has incredibly stood up to the elements in my woodsy habitat where “polar vortex” is a cruel reality. A friend hand-lettered the sentiment for me, but even an amateurish attempt would be charming.
9. Naked Books Tied Up With String
Bet you have some old falling apart books or a library that can’t give them away fast enough. Tie with some twine and embellish with a merry sprig.
Grumpy Cat may be with the angels now, but we’re still giggling at that sweet face and those silly cynical memes.
10. DIY Dried Citrus Garland
Can’t wait to make this DIY Dried Citrus Garland from Honestly WTF! Can you even imagine the citrus smells happening while we craft this lovely DIY garland? The scent of oranges is like love to me and also is a trigger of happy childhood memories, crafting with our Swedish immigrant neighbors!
11. DIY Peppermint Candles
Here’s another DIY holiday craft I intend to tackle…peppermint candles from A Pumpkin and a Princess.

Mysterious Bonus DIY Christmas Card
No idea how I stumbled on this tutorial for handmade Christmas card crafting. Also no idea why one would want to break out their iron and plastic wrap instead of a spray adhesive or glue stick. Additionally, no idea why one chooses not to buy from the vast array of inexpensive ready-made holiday cards. All of those mysteries aside, I couldn’t stop watching because it is strangely relaxing. Are you as nutty as I am? Let me know what you think.
Thanks so much for playing along today, friends. Make sure to visit this story with Fall DIY projects if you feel like smacking me for posting holiday goodness too soon!
Peace to you right where you are.
